For those of you in America, I hope that you have a very Happy Thanksgiving.
I am still working at Kelly Services, and I have been promoted to Senior Adviser at AppleCare. I am really enjoying my job.
One thing I want to advise you to do, is to make sure that you back up your telephone contacts and any other information you have on your phone, frequently. Just like your computer, if something happens to your phone, you'll lose a lot of valuable information. If your device locks with a passcode or a password, please make sure that you have it in a place where you will know where it is and let someone else know where it is. I had a lady called the other day whose sister had died and no one knew her password or passcode. They had no way to get into her phone to get her contacts to let her friends know she had died. Thankfully I was able to help her get the pictures and videos she'd recorded off of the device, but I couldn't help her with the contacts since she didn't know the passcode.
Since I'm still working from 11 AM to 8 PM with two days off, I'm not getting much writing done. I had hoped to have the Shipwrecked/Climb to the Top Collection Series, completed by October 14, but there's a lot of things that I need to change and I haven't had time to do that. I need to finish The Chronicles of Brad and then go back and clean all of it up. This is going to take a lot of time. And it's turning out that when I have time to write, I don't have the energy, and when I do have the energy, I don't have the time. Unfortunately, I do not have time to write at work. Even though we have some time between calls, I am doing follow up calls, research and other work-related things, so I'm not just sitting there twiddling my thumbs. I had considered just releasing The Shipwrecked/Climb to the Top Series, and then releasing The Chronicles of Brad at a later date. But I'm making some changes as I go, so I can't do that yet.
Again, if you're in America, I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. If you're not in America, please have a fabulous weekend.
